Justice League Animated Series Coming to Machinima



A new Justice League animated series is coming to the YouTube online network Machinima.

Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles will debut in the Spring of 2015 on Machinima described as a newly conceived reality featuring darker versions of the Justice League super heroes, which includes Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman.

It's said the new series is based on the upcoming Justice League: Gods & Monsters WB animated movie from Bruce Timm, which also has a 2015 release date.

Look for the Machinima Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles series to debut before the animated movie.

Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles marks the first collaboration between WB and Machinima since Warner Bros. invested almost $20 million into the company.

"Ever since we announced the Warner Bros. strategic investment, we have been looking for a new and exciting way to tap into the company's unmatched content," Chad Gutstein, Machinma's CEO, said in a released statement.

"We are committed to delivering DC Entertainment's extensive line-up of world-class characters and stories to audiences across all platforms and formats," added DC Entertainment president Diane Nelson. "Justice League: Gods and Monsters is an exciting opportunity to bring alternate versions of DC Comics' iconic Justice League characters to Machinima, and we look forward to bringing this new animated shortform series to life with our partners across Warner Bros."

Warner Bros. is also gearing up a Justice League movie for 2018 directed by Zack Snyder following Batman Vs. Superman.
